As horrible as the Rockets' broadcast team is, the studio team is excellent. So is their final sign off. Hopefully these guys come back soon.
It's important to remember in the broadcast rights mess - which we covered in great depth here - that almost 100 folks will be losing their jobs, including Adam Wexler and Howard Chen. Best of luck, guys, we know you'll land on your feet.
It might be time to pump the brakes on the "Howard is fully healthy talk." The Rockets center is farther along in his recovery from back surgery from last year, and feeling better than he has since he moved from Orlando, but 100 percent healthy he is not. Also, there are some former Magicks on the Rockets who got some warm fuzzies from being back in town.
